About this Item

Kenya 1995 -
oil on canvas
100 by 70cm excluding frame


After finishing his O- level, Mwangi pursued an art course at Buruburu Institute of Fine Arts- Nairobi, before joining Brush Tu Art Studio, where he currently works.
His work explores the big themes in life - in internal conflicts and drama around birth, identity, death, choices, relationships, feelings of numbness and fear. He approaches these themes through different mediums: painting, drawings and video, where by he shows torture/struggle on his figures using the wet cloth over the head in the water boarding and the decaying of the figures; A self-survival thing bringing a sense of uncertainty and that of being hunted. Lincoln has been exhibiting in Kenya and internationally.
